A Hazy yellow beer, minor head, no lace.
S Salty sour, grapefruit hops
T Lots of sour flavor which is pretty unnerving
M The aftertaste left in your mouth is a sour puss pond flavor that lingers a bit too long.
O Had on tap at the Republic Street Bar, got to keep the cool Martin House can shaped glass. The Sulky Brunettes at Mattfest 2014 made the beer much better though. It's an interesting beer, not sure I like it or would drunk again though.

This beer missed it's mark, at least with me. No head, no lacing, p yellow in color. To salty and not tart or sour enough to enjoy. I hope they keep trying with the gose and sour styles, they might make an enjoyable offering someday. As an added note, as this beer warms a bit it gets slightly more drinkable.

12 ounce can into a tulip glass.

Fizzy on the pour and a fizzy head results. Sitting for a few moments a few fingers thick before dissipating and leaving traces of film and a ring of lace. Lemon or wheat-colored in the body with a cloudy, murkiness. Not the sexiest gose I've seen but not too far off from what I should probably expect. 4

Sweet notes of wheat and malt lead off before a lemon aroma and tartness emerge. Straightforward and pleasant. 4

Crackers and lemons mingle on the tongue with a lingering salt flavor. Some malt sweetness combines with the lemon flavor mid-palate to suggest lemonade very briefly. 3.75

Light and easy-drinking as should be. Mild sweetness to go with the tame tartness and light acidity before a semi-dry finish. 4

A worthwhile gose. I could put six of these away no problem. I wouldn't be mad at all if this was my local gose as it would be a go-to.

Amazingly refreshing and tasty. Best so far of the Gose style. Drink on a summer day.

Cloudy gold pour from the can (canned 4/22/16) with white head that retracted quickly; little to no lace to speak of. Sour fruit nose. Tart apples, salty and a little lemon zest too. Zippy lite mouthfeel with moderate plus carbonation. Tart and refreshing as advertised.
